Thriving Rural Communities will hold a Rural Colloquium on "George Herbert and The Country Parson" presented by Jeremy Troxler, director of the Duke Divinity School program. Herbert, a 17th century writer and Anglican priest, wrote a reflection titled “The Country Parson” shortly before his death in which he set out “the form and character of a true pastor.”
No registration is necessary for the free lunch, lecture, and discussion on the ways the reflection can serve as a guide for ministry in the 21st century.
“The Country Parson” offers a timeless vision of faithful pastoral ministry within a rural community. Herbert's poetry, characterized by a deep devotion to Christ and the church, arises out of his experiences as the rector of the rural parish in England, where he was known for his faithful care for his parishioners.
